A note about blocking this cowl:
Friends who saw me knitting the sample thought I was doing cables; I assured them it’s only lace, but the stitches really pop. After blocking those “cables” stitches lost their pop and just looked like lace. So it’s up to you if you’d like to block the cowl (and lose that pop) or not. There are pics of the light green cowl showing it before and after blocking, so you can make an informed decision.

Thank you Rcarmich154 for test knitting & all your help!
